This paper focuses on the debate concerning the creation of "low-carbon" jobs. Government action on climate change promises economic opportunity. The language of climate change policy has hitherto been largely negative, with wide use of such words as "limitation" and "reduction." However, this paper points out that investing in new technology, stimulating new economic activity and growing new markets will stimulate growth and offer new employment.
